    Okay, now I'm confused here... Is the goal to just go tag anything on the Website or to get what someone has previously tagged?

    SORRY, my mistake. I took it for granted that folks knew standard tag rules. I have updated the initial post.

    The goal is to grab a shot of the current tag (in this case Miles the Monster), be the first to post a shot of it with your bike and then give us a new location to go after.

    Changed it up a little. Seeing as the odds are low that many folks will be willing to go to Dover, DE to grab this, how about we just make it a picture thread and post pictures of our bikes at locations from the Roadside AMerica site.

    Initial post has been changed to reflect this.

    Here's a handful from the Raleigh, NC area:
    Some are obviously better than others and there are a couple I couldn't get as they're in the middle of parks, indoors, etc.
